Smile Invitro

Hi,

We are having our first consultation for invitro next month, and my husband is scared that we may have more than 2 children. If they only put 2 blasocysts in me using ICSI can I still have more than 2?

We had our first consultation with the RE a month ago. He explained to us that usually the number will go down 'cause the chances of all surviving are slim (but it does happen). He said that for women under 30, if 2 are put in, it's a good chance you will get 2 back. If you are over 30, the chances go down and usually you get 1 of the 2 to develop.

My only guess would be if they split on their own to form identical twins to give you 3 or 4... I'm not sure what the chances of that are though...

My Dr. says it's less than 1% chance for them to split on their own.

I do know someone that had 3 put back and one of them ended up splitting, so she wound up with 2 identical and one fraternal, so it is possible!
